Veteran American talk show host Larry King is not with Covid-19 and has been admitted to a Los Angeles hospital.
The 87-year-old talk show host and CNN star was taken to hospital for medical help while battling the virus, according to Mirror.co.uk.
The report also reveals that Larry contracted the virus more than ten days ago. Larry – whose television career spans decades – is at greater risk due to the age of the virus.
The television personality has also suffered from health problems in the past, including lung and prostate cancer, as well as a heart attack.
He also had an almost fatal stroke in 2019, which left him ‘in a coma’ for ‘weeks’.
A representative for Larry King was approached by The Mirror for comment.
The report further suggests that Larry’s family – including his wife Shawn King and two sons, Chance and Cannon – cannot visit the star in hospital because he is in isolation.
Larry is apparently on good terms with his wife of 22 years, despite the fact that the couple is divorcing.
The award-winning television host is known for his work on The Larry King Show, as well as a long list of other television and radio podcasts, including several iconic interviews about celebrities.
Larry’s reported hospitalization comes after a difficult year for the television star, after he lost two children in 2020.
The talk show host paid tribute to his daughter, Chaia King and son Andy King, who both died unexpectedly within three weeks of each other.
After their deaths, Larry opened up in a statement about his family’s grief.
He wrote: ‘It is with sadness and a broken heart from a father that I confirm the recent loss of two of my children, Andy King, and Chaia King. Both were good and kind souls and they will be greatly missed. Andy died unexpectedly of a heart attack on July 28, and Chaia died on August 20, just a short time after being diagnosed with lung cancer. Losing them feels so out of place. No parent needs to bury a child. My family and I thank you for your outpouring of kind sentiments and wishes. ”
